Planning A Kids Party – Part 4

The next step is to work on the table setup. Immediately the idea of metal kept popping in my head. The plan was to wrap the food trays in aluminum foil to give them the feeling like it was a car shop.

Then it was time for placement. It took a few times moving things around on the table to find the best placement for the trays using varying heights, textures and shapes. The last step of the table setup is placing the extra décor items around the trays to “tell a story”.

Since the party is at a place of business there needs to be a few decorations on the tables where the children will be seated. I have learned that children like to sit together and this keeps feelings from getting hurt. With children, only put items on the table that can be played with or potentially broken. I settled on a few car related picture displays, orange cones and balloons.

The décor is all set.
